look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Typical hefeweizen hazy, straw-colored appearance. Mediocre head retention and lacing characteristics. Nice clove and banana notes on the aroma. A slight plasticky smell takes the aroma down a notch.

Refreshing and fruity on the palate, the flavor profile is par for the style. Light, wheaty malt base. Kind of lifeless on the finish. Mouthfeel is soft and pleasant, if a bit undercarbonated.

A solid, if uninspiring hefeweizen. There are plenty of better ones available in my NJ market, so I can't see myself picking this up again.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pours a murky golden colour, thin layer of head with little retention and no real lacing.

S - Wheat grass, hints of citrus, cloves and a light grassy finish.

T - Much like the nose, cloves, citrus and bready wheat with grassy hops and buttered bread lingering alongside some bitter citrus rind.

M - Medium bodied, smooth and a touch of dryness.

O - Top notch hefe with a solid flavour profile that is sure to please. This beer screams patio pints!

the green bottles don't do this any favors. a few of my sixer were skunked out a little bit, but this is a quality brew when handled correctly. the pour is a familiar cloudy pale yellow with a faint orangey hue and a bold white foamy head, thick with nice retention. the nose is clove and banana from the yeast, again, true to style. there is some more hops in the flavor of this than in some other german versions, which makes it a little snappy in the finish. I like that feature a lot, as no sugar really is detectable. I also like that the abv of this beer isn't 4.something, which I often find to be a negative feature of some of the german imports. easy drinking and chock full of flavor. there is a creamy texture to this, and its fuller bodied for the style. overall I think I probably like the paulaner version better, but this is a quality brew by any measure. just be careful of the green bottles that have spent too much time under florescents!
